A delicious blend of beef, Italian peppers, and cheese. Make ahead for busy days. It reheats wonderfully in the microwave.

Just made this last night and my family and I loved it! I made some adjustments from the other reviews: added cheyene powder garlic salt pepper fresh green peppers and used the sweet red peppers but drained the liquid-didn't have any mushrooms so omitted them I used the cheese and onion. I also used the new Pillsbury double pie crust (the easy just roll it on type) It was very good and will be made again and again! Thanks for a new yummy recipe! Read More

Good but a little heavy. I'd make it just a top crust only pie. Delete the cheese. Saute' fresh peppers with the onions. Read More

This was fantastic. It's hearty and tasty and my husband and five year old just gobbled it up. I added an extra cup of cheese to the mix and then sprinkled another quarter cup of cheese over the top before adding the top pie crust. In case you're wondering like I was the sweet peppers come in a jar and I found them in the produce section of my grocer store. I drained thier juices like another reviewer suggested and I think that's a good move because the pie stays nice and firm. Read More

"This one is a keeper " says the husband and I agree. I used fresh mushrooms and peppers packed in water not oil. Turned out great. Read More

This was really good and very easy to boot! I did add some herbs (rosemary marojam thyme) to season it up a little since the recipe sounded kind of bland. Didn't have any mushrooms on hand so obmitted. Then I threw in some frozen mixed veggies. Hubby RAVED. We both enjoyed very much; even had seconds! Read More
